Applause for Martin Andersen Nexø's work
6 June 2003 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

However old and seemingly oldfashioned too this film appears it truly is a must-see for anyone interested in Martin Andersen Nexø and his socialrealism which fully shows in this particular film.

Andersen Nexø uses all possible means to make the viewer aware of the true tragedy which goes on right under our noses without we act in any kind of way.

Ditte Menneskebare is but on a Andersen Nexø's masterpieces but Tove Mäes plays Ditte very convincing and the rest of the cast is also very convincing and the films is indeed "true to it's time".

Tragedy never gets "oldfashiond" neither ought Ditte Menneskebarn to since it is a film portraiting life then and, sadly enough, attitudes also of today.
